Evaluation

This processing variety is the latest harvesting plum at the moment, which is highly profitable due to its internal and external quality characteristics as well as high crop load. The very late ripening time requires additional regulation of plum fruit moth. Because Presenta (S) has a tendency to fruit clusters, it is also useful to add further fungicide treatment during humid weather conditions in the ripening period.
